Adding a pop of colour here and a splash of colour there is the perfect way to add interest to any room an painting the interior in the spring is one quick and easy way to get all your spring cleaning done.
Paint Colours Can Help Your Home Look Cleaner
Certain paint colours can help your home look clean even if you don’t have the time to get any cleaning done. Swapping up the current paint colours for the light neutrals can help get your spring cleaning done sooner.
Paint colours that can help your home look and feel fresher and cleaner almost instantly are whites or any shades of white paint colours.
But painting every room in white can also be too much for some. Some may find it to look and feel to sanitary like an institution of sorts while others may just feel it’s too boring. It is inevitable though that any light shade of paint colour will tend to be harder to clean and maintain, since scuff marks or hand prints will show up more easily.
It’s important to note that no matter what interior paint colour you go with, preparation before paintingis key. Making sure to seal any gaps, holes, or cracks in any of the drywall is an important first step to a professional looking result. You also need to ensure you use a paint primer before applying any paint and the paint finish type you choose will also contribute to how your paint stands up to everyday wear and tear.
Best Ways To Add Colour To Your Home Décor
If you are getting ready to get some spring cleaning going and you don’t want to change any of your current paint colours there is the option without making the commitment by simply adding a splash of colour.
If you want to keep your paint colour schemes but want a fresh new look to your space here are a few ideas on how to add colour to your décor this spring.
Accessories – Adding accessories like flowers, artwork, lamps or rugs is the perfect way to making a change to the look of a space without going over budget.
Bring in some flowers – It is an easy and quick way to add a burst of colour by bringing in a colourful arrangement or bouquet of flowers. Floral arrangements add life to any room and it is an instant and immediate change to the décor.
Fabric – Instead of making a big investment by buying a new sofa or couch or even having it re-upholstered why not bring in some accent pillows, new side table lamps, or a few differently sized vases. These accessories will add detail and interest to the space as well as colour without making a huge dent in the wallet.
Flooring – Without doing a total revamp of installing new flooring or carpeting, add that pop of colour by adding an accent or area rug to the room. Wall to wall carpeting is expensive but adding area rugs to accent the visual space in a room is more cost effective and not as long of a commitment. They are easily changed once a new colour is to be introduced to the space.
Art – Add personality to any room with a bold piece of art. Purchasing a painting with a bold colour to highlight the space draws the eye to the beauty of the room. Add a collage of pictures and photographs in different sized frames to create the gallery look and display your artwork collection proudly.
Window Treatments – Create a comfy feel to the room by adding window treatments. Adding blinds or drapes is another creative way to introduce that splash of colour to a room.
By accessorizing a room with the above ideas you’ll instantly add that pop of colour to any space making it feel fresh and new and all within budget.

Painting can be one of the quickest and easiest ways to get all your spring cleaning done. Since rooms may need to be emptied and cleared already for painters to work in, it’s the perfect time to declutter and re-organize.
